Bushveld – which also has tin and coal assets in Southern Africa – had already repaid US$8.8 at the end of May followed by a further US$1.2mln last week.
The AIM-quoted group confirmed today that it has made the final payment of US$1mln to Barak to fully settle the outstanding loan amount.
There are still some fees and interest left over, but Bushveld said it will repay those by the end of this month as agreed with Barak.
Bushveld took out the short-term loan in support of Busveld Vametco Limited’s acquisition of a 78.8% stake in Strategic Minerals Corporation from Evraz Group which went through in April.
“We are delighted to have fully settled the bridge loan in such a timely fashion as promised,” said Bushveld Minerals chief executive Fortune Mojapelo.
“We have worked well with the Barak team on the acquisition and are grateful for their support.”
Shares gained 7.5% to 9.62p on the back of the news.
